Saudi Airlines Cargo has launched a three times a week B747-400 freighter schedule between Riyadh and the Italian hub of Milano Malpensa Airport (MXP). 
“By operating direct freighter flights into Malpensa we are offering first class connections from our entire network including Hong Kong, China, Bangladesh and India right to the industrial center of Italy, thus proving our commitment to the Italian market” said Nabil Khojah, chief executive of Saudi Airlines Cargo.
